of that will work east. everyone else, it's another day to bundle yourself up. even north florida is in the low 40s this morning. as far as the big storm out west, mostly the worst of it will be in the northern rockies. blizzard warnings for areas of montana. tons of snow out here with lots of strong, gusty winds. the white is the snow already falling. some rain mixing at the higher elevations with the snow. almost the entire state of montana is covered with a good snowfall. the forecast for today, after a cold start, a nice afternoon in the southeast. new england, slow improvement. we will see late day rain in minneapolis. the rest of the country looks okay. through the weekend, that storm heads into the heartland. >> all right. we'll check back in a little bit. >>> peyton's potential pizza payday. headlines are next. >>> plus, the company that vows to hire 100,000 veterans. you're watching "first look" on msnbc. wanna see me get some great deals? it's a new way to get cash back deals, and it's called bankamerideals! i sign into my online banking... click the "cash back deals tab"... and pick the
that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had been campaigning in florida with marco rubio and was asked do you agree with what senator rubio was saying on immigration and he hesitated. he said i have got to think about it. i have to wonder if that wasn't a moment that might have changed the course of a lot of things. >> it could be. i think one of the realities here and mary catherine was touching on this. i think you will see core constituencies rush to people like marco rubio and say tell us how you would do this. i think it raises rubio's stature within the party. you have to look at the business community and people in the high-tech sector and wall street who want immigration reform to get the best brains into the country and are willing to make concessions if you tell them we can get the best people here. >> the system is a mess and horribly complex just as most things in the federal government. but this is not some sort of quick fix where you say you are for this and it involves the problems. it's policy were the on issues barack obama would have paid a price or brag
we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida
, senator from florida, arguably one of the biggest -- maybe the biggest -- republican winner on tuesday. people are looking at him as someone who can help the party thread the needle of finding a way to talk to the new generation, finding a way to talk to more of america. but a couple of hurdles that marco rubio has that his advisers are very aware of. one is, you have to find a way to talk in a more compelling, broader way for the party without alienating the most conservative people who are the base of the party, control the nomination. when we hear marco rubio talk about immigration, we're going to be hear him talk in biographical terms, talking about his parents, worked as a hotel maid, a bartender before they came to america from cuba. the other thing that they're very conscious of is they don't want him to be the latino candidate. marco rubio is going to offer himself as a compelling conservative, but someone who can also talk to hispanic-americans about why republican values should be their values. and that includes family values, that includes entrepreneurism, a free market. joe
colonel allen mutt looked like he lost in florida. he was a conservative. he lost. i think white guys can be conservative and win if they are good candidates and they make good ideas that are repealing. democrat, republic. this obsession with welling the ticket has to be all white or all black or brown, white, i just think it's silly. you are nodding your head. you want a color coded ticket. >> no. you are talking about racial bean counting. you are way way lost on this one. i don't get it you are so smart. look at the numbers of what came out tuesday and it looks like huge victory among whites for romney but loses the election. he had a plus 27 advantage among white men. still couldn't put him in the oval office. if you are thinking of it strategically and you want republicans to win. you have to be more inclusive and especially with the rapidly emerging latino population. >> do you think considers could have beaten barack obama? >> i don't know that she could have beaten him. she is closely identified with the bush administration. you were just pointing out they left some baggage on the
was that they said they served him poorly. they gave him information that, especially in florida, they thought they had it and they didn't. so i think there will be a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. bottom line, campaign was certainly not good enough to win anything. hardly anything. today they concedeed florida. obama goes to re-election with 332 electoral votes, extremely decisive. he has a lot of clout. >> greg: the campaign is like buying a printer at staples. you know looks good in the box. slow to get started. once it started going it was pretty good. then near the end it got wiped out by hurricane sandy. >> eric: leave here, quickly, a long time fast you have watched the show, months ago i recommended eric bernstein who ran the campaign to step aside. after that, the obama camp rolling out of -- >> bob: would have made no difference. >> eric: we want to leigh you with dennis miller on o'reilly last night. things are so tough, so tough, miller had to make changes already. listen. >> i just want to tell you, give you the final word. this is no longer silk. my pocket squares are now
miami-dade is done but a handful of florida counties are still counting votes from tuesday's election. time is about up, though. those counties have to report unofficial tallies in the state by noon tomorrow. the results will be certified november 20th. cnn has not declared a winner in florida yet. but democrats there have put the win in president obama's column. and mitt romney's team in florida told the miami herald their candidate lost the state. no rush, it's florida. if they get it within a week that's still pretty fast for them. >> they need to get their act to the. i feel like florida, on the lines thing, on the counting thing. we are in the technological age. it is time to move and fix it. that's my editorializing this morning. let's go back to the fiscal cliff. we also should get a little counter for the fiscal cliff. 53 days. christine's got an update on what it will mean if we hit it in 53 days. >> pretty alarming report out from the congressional budget office about this. it said in the post-election report on the fiscal cliff, it will lead to a recession and a spike in un
. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
carolina, florida virginia? >> all three of those states, plus indiana are comfortably out of the obama column where they were in 2008 and into the republican column. i think romney gets 279 to 281. >> i think this is premature. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled. >> no, i don't. we've got to be careful about calling things when we have 991 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote to count. >> karl rove said we should figure out what the deal is. >> the doubt that karl rove has attempted to place. >> you are comfortable with the call in ho i how? >> he's angry and pushing his finger in the air and looking sideways and looking mean and angry. >> that's awkward. >> they irradiated him as a rich guy who didn't care about ordinary people when he was on the side of ugly stuff about bain capitol and being a rich guy and i think he appropriately responded. >> this is mostly a tactical election. >> after they lose, it wasn't my fault, oh, romney, i tell you man, if i just had $800 million, maybe i could have done something with it. loser. i never get tired of thos
into the vault and made out with the cash. he is accused of robbing several banks in florida and washington earlier in the year. >> an officer is shot and injured in the robberies. a 70,000 reward is offered for any information lead to go his rays. >> we might soon see another member of the bush family in political office. reports say george p. bush filed the paperwork required to run for state office in texas. it's not clear what office he plans to run for. he is the nephew of former president george w. bush and son of explore dau governor jeb bush. >> scientists believe they found a super earth the planet is part of a system with 6 planets a orbit a star just like our solar system. astronomers belief the planet is water and 7 times larger than our planet earth. future high-tech telescopes will likely be able to see it. those are your stories for 5@5:30. >>>. obama will speak today about the most important issue looming the fiscal cliff. >> doug luzader has more on the economic crisis. >> good morning. it is a looming crisis. the congressional budget warns if we reach the fiscal cliff at t
involved in a lot of places. >> they tried. >> they tried. most notably in florida. >> colorado, too, and other places and it blew up in their face. >> because marco rubio wasn't sharing the angle. so this time around they said, okay, we will not get involved. in some ways it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't because i'm not sure -- i don't know that stronger involvement from the nrsc, and the national republican committee, does that keep him from losing? >> but do they get punished for not having the guts to tell jim demint enough? you know what, your guys are doing this. or do they have to do it now? >> i think there will be -- we were talking about this off-air. i do think there is a reckoning within the republican party now to say, do you want to win or do you want to kind of preserve the righteousness of your principles among a smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller group of people. that's what the election showed. >> i bring this up. some senate republicans think i was being unfair this morning to mcconnell and coryn. the way washington worked 20 years ago, there w
